Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security and DOD funding and performance?

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

Drug Ring Busted: 77,000 Fentanyl Pills, 250 Pounds Of Meth, 60 Pounds Of Cocaine Seized

The investigation, which launched in March 2019…”

Federal agents swing into action after large quantities of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl move past federal agents manning a $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security-then on into Colorado.

$49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security Vote of Confidence:

“Investigators say the ring transported large quantities of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl from Mexico through U.S. ports of entry into Colorado.”

Newspeople fail to ask questions. Our questions appear in bold type.


Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for risking your ass in Iraq & Afghanistan-working to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Don’t worry-The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe:

Major takedown at 1:20

“We arrested two individuals who attempted to sell six counterfeit NFL Super Bowl 54 T-shirts…”

“Comments are turned off”

Counterfeit Medical Masks vs. Counterfeit Sports Souvenirs


The investigation, which launched in March 2019…”

Wonder what was happening at border crossing inspections during the almost two years these folks were under investigation. Do the good guys who made the local busts notify the good guys at the border and ports of entry about the weak links in their process?

Were federal authorities at the border notified of this ongoing investigation?

Did traffickers get fast track screening at the border so as not to disrupt this ongoing investigation?

If the traffickers were given a pass at the border-would that have tipped them off as to the investigation-or would that have been seen as standard protocol?

The investigation, which launched in March 2019…”

Imagine that LE authorities observe a shoplifter or bank robber in action. Instead of going in to make an arrest they back off and conduct an investigation that goes on for almost 2 years. What if they applied the same tactic Re: crimes involving arson, terrorism, child abuse, DUI, etc.

I know, I know-It takes time to build a case against the really big drug traffickers.

This time next year-will there be any shortage of cartel product anywhere in the US? Has any city, county or state jurisdiction been able to cleanup their drug problem using these methods?


Lessons Learned?

Anytime there is a plane crash, a loss at sea, or an industrial accident, a thorough investigation takes place. Lessons learned are used to prevent future accidents.

Any similar effort after a big drug bust?

Preventing drugs from entering local communities would kill the chance for various agencies to get publicity for the occasional big drug bust happening in those communities.



Did the advantage of US Troops at the border, the big El Chapo takedown, opioid lawsuits, REAL ID, Homeland Security grant money, CBP social media posts, strict post 911/GWOT security protocols, and a $49.8 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security play any role in preventing these crimes?

When news/social media posts are created by federal employees, there’s no need to deal with any awkward/real questions from the press.

We’d love to see more in the way of newspeople asking questions.

In another State-Run Media/CBP Social Media Post, CBP tells us:

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units!

Nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Surely, a free and independent press will step up and ask for clarification on this wild CBP claim.

Away from any border crossing or port of entry:

Hey newspeople, how did 2,224 pounds of meth tied to the Sinaloa cartel enter Riverside County, if nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units?

Why is there a deadly fentanyl problem in Eastern Washington if nothing gets past CBP social media posts?


Has General Milley’s Operation Macho Swagger prevented cartel product from entering Colorado?

Newspeople remain silent.

Port Angeles CBP

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA

An upgrade in staff requiring a new, $11.9 million, 50 agent facility. Secret arrest statistics, denied FOIA requests, heroin and meth in the community, rare and mysterious cross-border arrests, fraudulent overtime claims, 1,200-horsepower interceptor boats and zero questions from the press.


Are fraudulent overtime claims still the norm at Port Angeles?

Is Port Angeles CBP staffing and infrastructure at all relevant in keeping heroin and meth from entering the Puget Sound area?

Has Port Angeles CBP been able to intercept any inbound meth or heroin?

Even one time?

Newspeople remain silent.
